Internet Explorer go deleted. How do I reinstall it?

I have a custom book.xlt and sheet.xlt in the C:\Program Files \Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\XLSTART folder. Excel does use that if I click on the "New" toolbar button or use CTRL+N while inside Excel. But if I create a new Excel document from Windows Explorer (right click > New > Excel Worksheet), it uses the default template. Is there a way to tell Excel to use my book.xlt when creating a new Excel file in Windows Explorer? I'm using XP and Excel 2003.

In MS Explorer how do you set a default view so all directories display details instead of icons as the default "out-of-the-box" is. Not sure where else to post this so thought I'd try here. Thanks for any help!

I have a sony vaio Fr285m, when connected to the internet the web pages do not close, only when ctrl alt deleting. Task manager states that IE is using 98% of the memory. Just wondering if anyone could tell me what is wrong with my laptop.

I have recently noticed that whenever I use the search facility within Win Explorer, I am prompted to insert the Office Program Disk. My laptop is a work laptop and so the software is network installed in wales. I work remotely and our helpdesk are useless - requiring me to send the computer off to them to fix anything. Before I face being computerless, any clues?

Hi how can i protect folders in windows from our staff moving them around, is there away where i can protect them, but people can still acces files in the folders?

We have Visio 2007 on XP. When I try to open large files (20mb-50mb) over the network using windows explorer, it stops responding after the first click on the file. Visio does not even launch. There is no problem opening smaller visio files. However, if I open Visio first and try to open a large file from the file>open dialog - it works fine and doesn't hang. This problem exists only for certain users on certain computers. Like so: PC1: Works for me(admin) / Not for her(reg user) PC2: Not for me(admin)/ Works for her(reg user) PC3: Works for both Please help!

Hi On the server, when I go into windows explorer, it comes up but it takes another 15-30 secs before folders appear. This also happens wherever folders need to be displayed such as open file dialog. Once the folders are displayed then everything starts working fine. What is the reason for this delay? What is going wrong here? Thanks Regards

No Internet Explorer

A frind of mine has a windows 95 o/s. This version of 95 had no Internet explorer on it. Years ago she bought a modem and somehow got hold of a version of IE. Unfortunately it has got deleted from the system and she not longer has a copy of it to re-install!! Could I get a version of IE from my 98 disc and put it on her machine? Also, I think she may have a virus because Outlook Express does not want to open. Has anybody heard of a virus that allows you to connect to the internet, but once connected it says that the application is shutting down. It does not shut down, (a connection is still maintained) but she is unable to start Internet explorer or Outlook Express. Would be grateful for any help whatsoever please. Regards. H

Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer, and RPCSS.EXE
14 replies , 4/30/2004, 4:32:40 AM
Here is a troubling failure to load IE6 (and IE5.5 before it) that has happened many times. It usually happens on the first load of IE6 after making a dialup connection. After that it is ok. (PC has Win98SE, Dialup 56K, no network, all windows updates installed) Firewall status: Zonealarm internet lock was on. 1 Dialed up 56K connection 2 Started IE6. It froze, didn't finish its startup. 3 Checked ZoneAlarm log. Windows Explorer tried to act as a server, but was stopped by the firewall. (This happens often on the first start of IE6 after dialup.) 4 IE6 is shown on the start bar but is not on screen. Can't start any other program. [ctl][alt][del] Killed explorer (Windows Explorer) (not responding) with "end task". Another instance of explorer remained in the "close program" window. 5 IE6 not responding -- end task 6 Upon changing NoteTab from full screen to normal position, got this message: "RPCSS.exe has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down." (RPCSS.exe is called "Distributed COM Services" in the firewall log.) 7 The windows start bar is missing. [alt][tab] brings it back and show IR6, even though I had "end task" it previously. 8 The dialup icon is missing from the bottom right, even though the connection is still active. This pattern, or a variation on it, happens repeatedly. QUESTION 1: What could be happening? QUESTION 2: Is it safe to permit the firewall to allow Windows Explorer and RPCSS to access the internet as servers? QUESTION 3: Another alternative would be to rename RPCSS.exe. Is that a good idea? PS: I use Adaware, Spybot S&D, Fprot. Sincerely, Stan Hilliard

Explorer Pane

Although I have used Office for years, but I recently encountered a corrupted profile and have therefore created a new profile. I am encountering a pane in Explore that I can't seem to get rid of. When I right click on the start button and go to Explore, I keep getting this Explorer Bar pane. I have gone to view, Explorer Bar, but there does not appear to be a selection that removes this view. I find no use for this particular pane. To be specific (and to be sure that I am referring to the right thing) it shows "File and Folder Tasks," "Other Places," and "Details". I have searched the newsgroups and found out how to get rid of the web toolbar, but it does not appear to be the same. Help. -- S

I have had an XP level maching for two years now. The XP was installed when I got it and probably had internet explorer 6. However, I installed my old Office 97 and seem no longer have the original internet explorer 6. Until recently I was able to use the browser from YAHOO! but really prefer internet explorer 6. I recently changed ISP services I was able to download internet explorer 6 from the site but can't seem to uninstall internet explorer 97. For some reason the roadrunner software keeps selecting the old internet explorer 97 and it just doesn't run right. Thoughts?

Hi, We are using VS.Net 2003. One of the issue we have now is that in our solution, we have about 500 projects (cutting the number down or separate into different solutions are not options). This makes managing the solution a big mess. I wonder if there is a way you can group the projects into folders so they will appear under solution tree as a group/folder. Only when you open the group, do you see the projects. Can we do that??? Please help!!! Feng

Hi, We have asked MS for more complete access to the Calendar, such as = getting access to the appointment's subject associated with the current = time slot when in Day View. For example, if you arrow down to the 9:00 = AM time slot, and you have an appointment, we (blind computer users) = never had access to the text of that appointment without actually = tabbing into the appointment's edit box. According to the beta team, we can now get access to that data with the = 2007 Outlook object model, using the Explorer.Selection object. I have tried to get that, but can't seem to get the correct object path! Can someone give me an example code on getting to that puppy? I'd like = to be able to get to all the properties associated with that current = time slot's appointment, but can't seem to get that path. When I try to go into the help for that object, I get the message that = the page is still under construction with the beta release I'm using. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm getting the Outlook.Application object, then I'm getting the = ActiveExplorer object, and everything is valid at that point, because I = can get the .Caption, and it returns the title for the calendar, but I = get lost at that point. the .Selection returns a valid object, but I = can't seem to do anything with it after that.
